Picatinny rail questions

I just purchased a new Savage 12LRPV in 6mmBR.
Now for the scope, rings & base.

Use of rifle is varmints & target - 500 yds+
Scope more than likely NightForce NXS 8-32x56

Looking at Picatinny bases:
Opticsplanet.net has a NF-MT-20MOA base for $114 - (steel I believe).

I need advise on this:
Any other bases? Better prices?
Is 20 MOA enough (I doubt I would ever shoot over 1000 yds)

Which rings & where?

    20 MOA will be enough for 1000yds.

    Re: Picatinny rail questions

    20 MOA is definately enough with the NXS series with 1/4 clicks. I personally like 1/8 for my varmint guns, just because I like to dial it in a bit closer with out so much hold off at extended ranges. And when a 20 moa base is used, there is more than enough elevation.

    I have Farrell 30 moa on my 300 ultra. Nice base and reasonably priced. Very compariable to nightforce, badger ordnance and the like.

    One thing I do like is Nightforces' one piece 20 moa ring/base combo. Very solid and no alignment issues.

    Are you asking who makes good 30mm 1.125 height rings? Depends on how much you want to spend. All of the folks I mentioned earlier all make em. I would recommend going to each website and checking it out.

    Badger, Nightforce, Farrell, Leupold mk4, offer very good rings for Picatinny setups.
